I want to apply Data Validation to a cell, so that only the following combination of letters and numbers can be entered.

Letter Letter Number Number Number Number Number Number Letter.

e.g AB123456C.

I am trying to make a formula which will tell me if A1 is a postcode (a letter and a number e.g CV42 6AQ)

In the A column, it looks like this:

CV42 6AQ

FC45 D4D

West yorkshire

PR42 6RD

Etc.

i want it to identify all the postcodes, and NOT "West Yorkshire" because it does not contain a number.

I WANT TO INSERT A LETTER IN FRONT OF A NUMBERS THAT ALREADY EXIST IN CELLS

IN A COLUMN. SORT OF LIKE USING "FIND & REPLACE" EXCEPT THAT I DON'T HAVE

ANYTHING TO REPLACE; I JUST WANT TO INSERT A LETTER PREFIX IN FRONT OF

NUMBERS.

I want the A4 cell contains the calculation of B4 (but the number gained from the funtion row and if the B1 cell contains the number 10 the K(B1)=K10

[A4]=B(row())*K(B1)

i have this in my 1 cell: ttgtcctacttacaacactgtgcttagtaatggttattgcgactttatccttgttctgaa i want to count how many "a" in this cell . which formula i can use to solve this problem ?

column A

3245

I want to insert the prefix "S" in front of the nummbers 3245. so i would hopefully end up with

Column A

S3245

i want to fill down a column and instead of my formula changing from A6 to A7 i want it to change to B6.

City

01

Express

02

Overnight

03

So "C" would return 01, "E" would return 02 and "O" would return 03.

For the below formula is it possible to replace the B's (column location) with a cell Say Z146 which contains the letter B (or a number if thats easier and someone can tell me the numbers for each column).

When the formula is dragged into the next cell (down) it takes its column reference from Z147 and then my life becomes so much easier.

=IF(INDEX('Overs-Unders'!B:B,MATCH($C145,'Overs-Unders'!$A:$A,0))"",INDEX('Overs-Unders'!B:B,MATCH($C145,'Overs-Unders'!$A:$A,0)),"")

I would like to change a number to a letter and then drop a digit from the end.

Say my data in A1 reads 81234568, and I would like it to display in cell A2 as h123456.

I have letter and number combination code in two collumns and they differ for 10.000 numbers:

BAM98314

BAM88314

BAM90000

BAM80000

As you can see the left code is for 10000 numbers higher. the letters are allways the same. In the event that this isn't so, if difference between codes in same row is more or less than 10000 numbers. I was thinking on making conditional formating so the cells with wrong difference would be marked red, but I do not know how to make formula for this difference.

How to translate a specific number into a specific letter related to the number itself.

I have lots of different numbers for example all going down a specific cell (These numbers I want to separate into 3 different catagories. The positive numbers I want to be calculated as the same Letter that is next to that row directly over to the left of that cell.

So if the letter

B / cell / cell / +9 / Then I want if its a positive number like +9 to answer in the formula with the same letter (B) listed to the right in the same row in a different cell of course

B / cell / cell / -6 / Then I want if its any negative number like -6 to answer in the formula as the opposite Letter of (P) listed to the right in the same row in a different cell of course

P / cell / cell / +17 / Then I want if its a positive number like +17 to answer in the formula as the same letter (P) listed to the right in the same row in a different cell of course

P / cell / cell / -3 / Then I want if its a negative number like -3 to answer in the formula as the opposite Letter of (B) listed to the right in the same row in a different cell of course

and thirdly if its a (0) zero and only (zero's) Then I want the answer to stay (0) zero.

The number can be any numbers it doesn't matter. Only distinction is that positive number of +1 and up repeat and stay the same letter that the cell on the far left is already stated.

and all the negative number of -1 amd below all reverse the letter to the opposite letter of (B to a P) or (P to a B) listed to the right in the same row in a different cell of course

and of course (0) zero would be listed as a positive number and only return a (0) zero as the result of the formula.

I have a Col where the cells have been formatted to enter "PR" before the numbers input into any cell in that Col. I did this by using the custom selection in the format cell. However some times i need to input the number with the letter "A" at the end. For instance PR123456A.

Now in some cells it lets me do this but in others it does not. It would end up with 123456A, loosing the PR at the front. I have checked that all is well within the custom window. Can any body offer an explanation as to why it could be doing this.

In sheet1 I have a simple database consisting of 5 columns of data

Column A : Name ie James Jones

Column B : payroll number ie 123456

Column C : shift times ie 1245-2124

Column D : job title ie floor

Column E : comments ie A/L or 0600-1500

what I would like is some code that will go down Column E and if a 'time string' ie 1300-2130 is found then copy this string and paste into corresponding value in column C. If a text string is found ie A/L or Sick or anything like this then ignore and move onto next cell, loop this until all cells in column E have been checked.

Is there any way to name cells with same letter but different number?

e.g i need to name the first row A1 to A100.

I need to make a series of numbers and letter auto fill in a spread sheet

Example

2650A

2650B

2650C

And so on.

I have a table like this.........

Item Code

Ice A

Ice A

Ice B

water D

water A

water C

water A

milk B

milk D

milk C

milk C

milk C

milk B

And I would like to count the number of each letter to look like........

_______ A B C D

Ice ___ 2 1 0 0

water _ 2 0 1 1

milk ___0 2 3 1

Is there simple function that anyone knows of (or has written) that will convert a letter to its alpha-numeric equivalent?

For instance, A = 1, B = 2, AA = 27, etc (a = 1, b = 2, aa = 27)

I have records combined with letter in column A: number is always on left and letter always on right, such as 456UI, 4689746COMPREH. How can split the combination into number in column B and letter in column C?

View 9 Replies View RelatedI'm trying to add plus 1 to a cell from another cell but it doesn't work because the number starts with a letter. I do want to keep the letter in there for a reason so removing the letter to make it work is not what I want.

Example:

Code:

ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Invoice").Range("H5").Value = ActiveCell.Value + 1

Is it that I need to declare and set the ActiveCell value as a string or something?

The following displays a name and number as the Chart title with VBA...how do I change the code so that is it name plus letter...instead of being Group 1 , Group 2 etc..etc.. it will be Group A , Group B etc..

Code:

.ChartTitle.Text = "Group " & lng + 1

Is there a way to get the column Letter, instead of Number?

like in A1 Column() would equal 1 in B1 Column() would equal 2

I would like

in A1 Column() to equal A and in B1 Column() to equal B

is there a way to make the following code return the letter of the column instead of the number? currently if the 'String' value that is in 'ColumnFind' is in column B this code returns a value of 2. i Need the 'B' for later code to work.

ColumnLetter = ColumnFind.Column

I need to figure out the number of occurrance of a letter in a word written in a cell. For Example i am writing "pattern" in a Excel cell. I want to know the marco/vba code that will give me the number of occurrance of each letter. The output should be:

p=1

a=1

t=2

e=1

r=1

n=1

I need to convert a column letter to a column number for the following line of code in my VBA application:

VB:

strAverageBaseFormula = "=AVERAGE(D" & Trim(Str(lngFirstRowOfIncrement + 1)) & ":K" & Trim(Str(lngFirstRowOfIncrement + 1)) & ")"

I am inserting a formula into a cell using VBA, but the problem is that I don't know the letter value of column "K" (used in the middle of the line); instead, I know it as column number 11. Is there a simple way to convert the column number 11 to the column letter "K"?

I have a spreadsheet with information in columns a-x. In column A there are part numbers like: RH630-34, PH630-343, 6-255, 16-01, 72500, There are may combinations of just numbers, and numbers first letters second, and letter first number second.

All usually seperated by a hyphen. The entire spreadsheet will be sorted by Column A first.

I need to sort them so the order would be numbers first and combo with number letters next. finish product: 6-255, 16-01, 72500, PH630-343, RH630-34. Is this possible? I have seen other posts and suggesting putting spaces before the numbers. That seems to work but in the case of 6-138 and 6-1038 the 6-1038 is first

I have a sheet which calculates payment amounts.

Column titles:

Hours | Rate of Pay | Total

In the hours column usually the entries consist of numbers and everything works fine. However when an employee is on holiday they are still paid.

What I want to do is be able to enter the letter "H" for one of the entries in the hours column. The sheet to translate this as 2 hours.

H=2 x rate of pay = total

I cannot for the life of me get the correct formula to in order to achieve this. I don't particularly want to use a macro for this and others have suggested the "COUNTIF" function.

I have a cell range that is passed as a String to a function, and within that function I need to extract only the Column letter. If it was just 1 letter it would be simple, but it may be 2, so does anybody know of a way of testing to see if the second character is a letter or a number?
